on to their needs. >> rose: you mentioned romney early on made the point, used exact word i think of very similar, i want to help you, we are going to create jobs and i pam going to help you create lines. >> what a great line and ikept thinking, i didn't think at the time, we are all thinking afterwards, but if the president said, you know, that is what i felt about the auto workers and all the people that depending on auto industry jobs and did something i haven't done before, i took a risk with the rescue plan and i was willing to do some intervention there, we normally don't do in our capitalist society but i thought it was importance because general motors are very important the our society, not just economically but socially, there have to be in blue collar jobs for our society and we needed to feel the grit tens of those kind of jobs, they are who we are, and he could have stood up and given a real wonderf statement to the people of wisconsin, ohio and michigan, and it would have grabbed people, a real blue collar statement, the president didn't seem to know he was allowed to be pa passionate
's not going to be because of big bird? >> first of all, as governor romney pointed out last night, the mayo clinic is a private institution run by people privately who do things efficiently, which is very different than the federal government, which has rampant waste. i helped co-author a book called "stop paying the crooks" a few years ago which pointed out in new york state medicaid, 10% of the money goes to pay for fraud. >> we're talking about medicaid, not medicare. >> medicare's the same problem. >> i'm jumping in. unlike jim last night, i mean it when i jump in. >> i'm very proud of you. we're proud of you. >> you will be unsurprised to hear you have been speaking more, newt. not by a lot. when we come back, jennifer will get her lion's share of the time to respond to it and we will have more red meat to toss on the barbecue, including the future life or death of big bird. a speed bump!

moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when yoare in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put forth your plan. the president chose to put forth his plan last night and that's what spent his time on. but certainly there were unanswered lies. >> newt gingrich, you've heard the allegations. apparently barack obama is facing the same problem you faced, is that mitt romney was just telling loads of lies and you can't do anything about it. >> first of all, it's a great honor to have governor granholm quote me and maybe one of the few times she ever does. but it was a very nice thing for her to do. i think what was intriguing, she actually raised a point that i was talking with my friends about today. i get the sense that obama never watched the debates that r
national polls, not state polls, national polls, and the margin's been over two points. if mitt romney moves up two points and president obama moves down two points, there's another contest here with somebody else in front. lou: look at the swing states, looking at rasmussen, romney ahead in virginia and in ohio, romney a point behind the president where there was a significant lead, as you know, for the president. this is having some influence early. is it likely to be more profound as days go on? >> well, in all likelihood, this will build itself in for three or four more days here. there could be a lengthened -- and then the vice presidential debate that i suspect ryan takes care of biden in good form, but not much impact on the polls, and then the polls will be influenced by the debate the week following. let me say something about ohio. you put it in an interesting subject there. president obama's campaign said for weeks ohio's comfortably put away, ten points. american cross roads, which i don't head, just a supporter of it, i raise money for it, mu american cross roads' polling
's a basketball reference. i wanted to make sure you knew that. but i bet at this point, romney's garbage man is voting for him. obama to me, he remained me of homer simpson rolling down the mountain and continually, no matter what he does, keeps hitting his head over and over and over again. every rock, it was -- he wanted to go. it was kind of sad. >> you know what it seemed like? mitt romney just -- didn't attack, but he was firm with him. no, mr. president, you're wrong. i didn't say that. those aren't the numbers. i don't think president obama has been spoken to like that in four years. >> no, he hasn't. >> flunkies say yes, sir, mr. president, you're right, mr. president. >> let me ask you a question, he says, romney says last night, this is why i think how can you give it a win to romney? he says, oh, my gosh, how can you say that i've been running on a plan to cut $5 trillion and give these tax cuts to the rich? wait a minute. that's exactly what you've been doing. how can you say that? he says, oh, i'm going to repeal dodd frank. oh, yeah, medicare will be a voucher. these are not go
the debate you call the winner a liar. >> there have been plenty pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and if he was talking he was, if he was speaking he was lying. >> my co-host on "the five," the name-calling. what about that? will that sure the obama campaign? >> he sounded like a sore loser. anyone watching that debate psalm mitt romney frustrated because he felt the president was lying. if the president felt he was not being honest with the american people, he had every opportunity to bunk what romney was saying. he didn't do it. i have worked on a number of campaigns. i look back, never, even when you want to say, wait, our opponent is lying, that is really, really negative stuff. that democratic national convention director should walk that bra. that is nasty politics. it will backfire. when you get that low in the mud you end up with mud on yourself. >> an important note is that the director says he is a liar harks is different from saying mitt romney lied or he is lying. >> it is desperate. they will have to come out and point out where he is actually being dishonest and t
any movement is significant. right now, virginia shows romney up by a point. in florida, romney is up. let's start with virginia specifically. virginia was close but now we have romney up by a point in virginia. tell us, predebate, where were they? >>guest: it has been fairly close for a while. a month ago president obama was up by a point or two. there has not been a blow out in virginia through this. what we are seeing --. >> let's go through one by one. florida, talk about florida. your poll, again, polling that came out this morning, brand new, shows romney, 49, and president obama 47. >>guest: it is important to note this poll and all the one we are talking about we did last night after the debate was finished. a month ago, president obama was leading by to points in the great state of florida this is a state romney has to win. again, we are seeing a modest shift. with a four-point shift and it goes from obama up by two, to romney up by two, it is significant. >> now the great state of ohio, that poll, i saw it was obama by 8 percent or 9 percent. there is volatility in the polls
. the obama camp released a television ad pointing out romney's blatant lies. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how could we ever trust him here? >> i know a lot of lefties woke up today wondering why it felt like they had a little bit better command of the material than the president did. well, who knows. today the president and his campaign showed a willingness to change direction when things don't go according to plan. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. will mitt romney get away with lying to the american people? text "a" for yes, text "b" for no to 622639. always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com and i'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, stephanie cutter, obama 2012 deputy campaign manager. >> hey, ed, thanks for having me. >> you bet. there were highlights last night obviously for the president. he went after
and reduce the taxes on the rich. romney took the beginning of that debate and attacked each of the points and demolished them. again, all that came from negative advertising. i think what he did last night is he dissolved $150 million of negative ads and turned them to dust. >> bill: do you have any idea why barack obama didn't mention the 47% comment? >> i was immediately struck by the fact last night in the commentary that's the first -- that's the first thing i mentioned because it was shocking. that is the best weapon that obama and he didn't use it the only possible explanation is that h he is so far ahead he can sit on a lead. he doesn't need to take something that could be dangerous. because, if you get too tough, you are the incumbent, you are ahead and you get tough on the other guy. that he could be seen as negative. it could hurt obama's ora. this cool unflappable guy. that must have been the reasoning because there is no other reason. it makes no sense at all. >> bill: you don't have to do in a mean-spirited way. do you want to explain that governor? there is little unsettling
romney over the vagueness of his tax proposals. >> at some point, i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they are too good? is it because that somehow middle class families are going to benefit too much from them? >> bill: again that was a scripted line. the president didn't deliver it with much verb. >> the president the is a good debater and public speaker we know that the mistake he he made last night was coming off as a boring college professor. he simply droned on and on about people he met in kalamazoo or some place, who had a tough deal going on. instead of making dramatic points, the president meandered. and i couldn't believe -- i couldn't believe that mr. obama didn't even bring up mitt romney's 47% remark. what happened to that? by saying he thought 47% of americans wouldn't vote for him because they are tied to entitlements mr. romney put himself in a difficult position and the president doesn't even mention it? astounding. also mr. obama did not look to the future. he did not
. >> at some point i think the american people have to ask themselves is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they are too good? >> bill: gosh romney scoring big in the debate last night. all the polls say that. but what happened behind the scenes? krauthammer, beckel, ingraham and kelly will all weigh in. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m., just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. >> bill: al gore said it was the altitude that hurt president obama during the debate ♪ rocky mountain high. >> is the former vice president high? >> you all only have a few hours to adjust. >> that's interesting. >> i don't know. >> bill: jon stewart may be getting a bit nervous over my debate with him on saturday. >> o'reilly is 6'5". 250. it's like debating a yeddi. i need to stay away from his paws. if he gets a paw on me. >> it's over. >> bill: we will have the latest on the rumble in washington, d.c. >> bill: caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o
, cue mitt romney. that's what happened today. his team is furiously pointing out how many people are underemployed. last month's household survey found 582,000 of the jobs created involved part time workers who wanted to be full time. plus, no one should forget all the people who have stopped looking for work. romney says this new number or not is not what a recovery looks like. >> the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the workforce, today is on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> "outfront" tonight, ali vels velshi, ethan and a former staff member for president oba's national commission on fiscal responsibility and reform, daniel mitchell, senior fellow at the cato institute. alan, the numbers sound good. are they? >> i don't care. i'm going to go one further than erin. not only does the absolute number of the unemployment percentage not matter. i don't even think the trend matters. bottom line is there are measures of unemployment much more important. the number of jobs created minus lost. the average hours
was overbought and it was time to buy romney, so i'm using this as a point to sell romney, make some profits. but, you're going to credit this jump because of the debate. that's ridiculous. what about the first 6000 points that got the s&p up to four-year highs? that didn't have anything to do with it? > > i'm not going to take that away from obama- hold on a second. the point is, i think obama was completely factored in. i think romney didn't even have a chance of winning up until last night, and i think the market realized- > > yes it did bounce back. > > round 2: the gas stunt? there's a political ploy right now of selling gas at $1.84, around the price when the president took office. of course, americans for property is backing this. they're pitching in a couple of dollars so americans can get cheaper gas. do we want gas to go back to those levels? > > absolutely positively not. anybody that thinks they want to go back to where we were is silly if not idiotic. gas was at that price because crude oil was at $33 because the world was coming unglued. so, at the time, sugar was half price from wh
showing president obama's leading governor romney by one point. sixty to 49. in florida, a big shift showing governor romney leading president obama 49 to 47%. he had been showing mitt romney behind in florida prior to that debate. now he is ahead. in virginia, governor romney leading the president 49 to 48%. along with more voters, we saw an interesting tweet from former howard dean campaign manager joe trippi. he wrote that 20 minutes into the debate, gop online voter registration doubled above normal. and it is still at that pace. he said that at 6:00 p.m. eastern yesterday. citing a democratic source. joining me now is laura ingle. he didn't want to get too specific, he's a democrat saying that the registrations are going way up for these republicans in the wake of what we saw on wednesday night. and that you have other republicans who are saying it truly was a game changing moment. >> i think that's right, and i think the rasmussen poll and the new donations for the romney campaign every two seconds -- all of this adds up to a sizable momentum shift in the collection. megyn, i t
, i think s wasting three or $4 trillion, $3.5 trillion getting nothing for it. i think romney's point, you know, the stimulus spent a trillion, 80% of it wasted in paying down state debt. really no bang first buck at all. what obama has done is put the country in debt. no president is responsible for a recession. no president -- . >> jack, to be fair s it the president who put the country in debt? didn't he inherit some of that? >> he inherited some debt from george bush and i was a conservative who said bush spent. spent in the entire a iraq war. so, all of this debt is really obama sobama debt. i mean -- is obama debt. george bush is responsible for 5% of it. >> i don't buy those numbers at all. the debt was $1 trillion wh obama came into office. the noble prizewinner, the economist, estimates the cost of the iraq wars in the neighborhood of 5 or $6 trillion. by the time we pay veterans its >> all right, gary, let me switch topics for a little bit n. an introduce yesterday, mitt romney backtracked on his infamous 47% comment saying in this case, i said something that is just comple
else are you wrong about? but what choice does romney have at this point in how to respond to that 47% comment? >> i can what happened was he was a captive of the right wring of the party. anytime that he deviated they would smack him down. they said we have to house break the dog. beat the dog bad dog. it took until conservatives got so desperate that now he is freelancing. he is a free man. if there is something lawrence that you like, maybe he is for it. we just don't know. in the next 33 days, he is unthennered and whatever is out there that might prove appeal. >> it is like a fruit basket. it could be a $50,000 deduction. just pick a number. >> well, we now know what the prepared response was for last night 47% question. it was going to be complete disowning of it. >> in the same way alex that he, and i have to say, he disowned the notion of doing a $5 trillion tax cut which has been a principle of his campaign until last night. >> it is amazing though that mitt romney who has been so burned by you tube is proposing that everyone is going to forget what he has proposed for the la
thing. that is great. obama pointed out five times that me and romney agreed on the same things. it was like he was docile to a fault. >> he seemed like he had a man crush on him. he seemed starstruck. >> let's stick with starstruck. i think he was starstruck. >> didn't he seem that way? he was giggling and nodding his head a lot and he was really taken as if he would not go to a half court basketball game. >> he was more interested than debating him. i can't say i blame him. romney is gorgeous. he is successful and kind of a nice guy. he looked down. why did obama look down a lot? >> he was surprised and was caught a little off guard by how well prepared romney was for this debate. quite frankly i was too. i think i was looking down because he was nervous for that reason. i think he was also looking down at his notes trying to find points to i can ma. in -- points to make. that being said he lacked a lot of details. and while he caught obama on a bad day, he needs to be prepared for the next one. i don't think obama will make the same mistake twice. >> statistically you don't g
. especially his claim of $4 trillion of deficit reduction. romney made a point he'd cut the budget for pbs, even to the and moderator, jim lehrer from pbs. >> i like pbs, big bird, you, too, but i'm not going to keep on spending money. >> i want to make sure i got this straight. he'll get rid of regulations on wall street, but he's going to crack down on sesame street. >> the debate was civil. but today a key romney surrogate said this. >> what people saw last night was a president that revealed his incompetencies, how lazy and detached he is. >> did you really mean to call barack obama lazy? >> he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> now, the pressure is on paul ryan and joe biden in a debate next week. >> i don't want to say anything in the debate that's not completely accurate. >> and the stakes are a lot higher for the president to come up with a different game plan for his next debate with mitt romney two weeks from now. brian? >> andrea mitchell remains in denver tonight. thanks. and, of course, thanks to social media, getting reaction to a debate isn'
political points. but shadowing the president in virginia, mitt romney waited nine minutes deep into his scintillating stump speech before even mentioning the big news of the day, delivering it like a speech at a funeral. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you know, to this year has come down very, very slowly. of course, even those that have jobs are having tough times. >> okay. but give mr. romney credit because he actually admits the unemployment rate did come down. unlike prominent conservative jack welch who tweeted this morning, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. okay. tuesday he was a ruthless race baiter. yesterday he was a feckless delivery boy. today he's don corleone, and there's more where that came from. congressman west, take it away. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data, correct? >> well, absolutely. >> good news is all this co
of the points romney brought up on wednesday night. points he probably would have liked to have made wednesday night, but he's rolling them out now. one of those points taking issue with romney's claim that he would slash the deficit by trimming funding to public television, including big bird. of course, that's become a big laugh line now. president obama saying elmo better watch out. he also had a new line of attack today. he brought up the fact that mitt romney had essentially said his health care plan would include funding pre-existing conditions. that's a claim that the romney campaign has walked back. today president obama said that mitt romney was fact checked by his own campaign, so we're seeing a feistier more aggressive president obama certainly than we saw on wednesday night. >> and the president's advisers, kristin, say that they will likely make some adjustments before the next debate. is it fair to assume that the president may become slightly more aggressive at the next one? >> reporter: i think that it's a fairly safe assumption. one of his top advisers said they're going to ta
, lower income families with children would pay an average $2,000 more. but mitt romney is right to point out that others have poked holes in the math, including bloomberg, that middle class would be hit with an increase of only $1,000 not $2,000. the tax policy center was told about this. according to bloomberg, the authors changed some of their statements. the conservative tax foundation claims that the center didn't account for economic growth and romney's plan would pay for itself, that there would be no middle class income tax increase. last month came on the show and did the math and said if you close or cap itemized deductions and assume that the economy grows at 3%. historically, that would be reasonable. right now it's been a challenge. they would raise $200 billion, which means you wouldn't have to raise taxes on the middle class. it could add up. if he could sell it, could it be the issue that wins him the election? the senior political analyst and fiscal responsibility and reform. great to see both of you. appreciate it. doug, let me start with you. this stood out to me last n
